Crocs Rock!

I have to admit, I never was able to jump on the original Croc bandwagon. The big, bulky clogs on my Size 10 feet weren't pretty. So when my sister suggested I try a pair of Crocs for my aching, swollen feet, I had little hope to say the least. But once I saw hers -- cute sandals vs. bulky clogs, my heart fluttered a bit. Could it be? Comfortable shoes that could pass as dress shoes in a more casual setting? My rhinestone flip flops weren't cutting it in my business-casual workplace. So I went online, picked two different styles with two different color combos, and waited patiently for them to arrive.

I've had them for about a week now, and I have to say -- they are FABULOUS!!! At first they were a little snug, but they stretch out to fit your foot (and hopefully continue to stretch as my foot does?). I got two styles: The "Cleo" in brown and the "Patricia" in black. I would by no means say they are "dressy", but they work with sun dresses, crop pants, jeans -- basically, the much more casual side of "business casual". The price was ok -- $29.99 for the Cleo and $39.99 for the Patricia, but I figure I will wear them for a while. At least another 4 months!
